This CDr features an early version of the Biophilia album. Every song is mixed differently from the final release (according to the promo sheet, this version of the album was mixed by Serban Ghenea) and therefore many songs contain major or minor differences compared to all previously known releases:

01 Moon - similar to the single version. Nothing unique
02 Thunderbolt - similar to the final release version (including beats) but does not contain the ambient sounds as heard on the final album mix
03 Crystalline - similar to the Serban Ghenea mix but noticeably different in spots, in particular the beats/vocals/gameleste mixing at the climax
04 Cosmogong - similar to the Serban Ghenea single mix. Nothing unique
05 Dark Matter - similar mix to the version found in the app with more upfront vocals and no ambient effects
06 Hollow - similar mix to the version found in the app except this version features beats
07 Virus - unique version of the song with the timbre of the "gameleste" instrument noticeably different
08 Sacrifice - similar to the app version, slower paced than the final album version and without beats
09 Mutual Core - similar mix to the app version except it features beats plus some added ambient sound effects in the very last seconds of the song
10 Solstice - the original studio version, unavailable on either the app or the final album (both of which contain a live version performed at Manchester, July 2011). However, a mono mix of the studio version is present in the app files but the app must be hacked in order to hear it. The app itself does not play this version

Track durations do not appear on the release itself but entered precisely.

did anyone not get a download card for the mp3?
Was bought this as a present expected it to sound crap but it doesn't, it sounds good! Hardly any crackle or noise and I love the colours of both records
i guess I'm really lucky because on my copy there is very few crackles. 3 at most.
side C has a static type throbbing hum in the right channel for the first 4 minutes of hollow! so disappointing. not sure how to fix.

At the begin i could hear many crackle, not big but yes i was disappointed. Then after a good wash and some listening, so the stylus polished the groove walls, the sound improved much. I would recommend this pressing. Bass is huge and records almost perfect flat
how did you wash the record?Did you use some special product?
I am looking for the blue disk Biophilia ‎( Album, 320) One Little Indian.Won't you please, help me ?Best regards
Not a really good pressing here, I will not recommend to buy this pressing, blue vinyl full of cracks even after cleaning
Phallozs Dwarfs
i feel really lucky because my record doesn't crackle or skip anywhere on the disc. The packaging its self is quite beautiful too i personally would recommend getting this.
hey the volta colour vinyl was DMM - is this? Ive seen it advertised as such .... the bio black vinly sounds AWFUL!
My favorite moment on the album (Sacrifice at 3:06) SKIPS!!! Brand new record being played on a brand new turntable and it skips!!! A brand new $32 record should not skip!!!!!!!!
We need a DMM release of Biophilia!!! And Vulnicura!!
No matter what i do.. the crackling noise on the blue disc wont disappear.. anyone elses suffer from this?i probably wouldnt be so bothered if my favorite track 'Hollow', also one of the quieter tracks of the album, wasnt on the blue vinyl making it even more noticeable
YES. It is awful and I can't stand to listen to it.
Yep, I had exactly the same problem, and I've seen people on Reddit complaining about it too. Is the black vinyl the same?
Mine has a pressing fault on the orange disc..a couple of pits/bumps in the vinyl..
This has the same slightly odd sound as all the other Biophilia releases. As I argued on the page for the original UK vinyl - this is cut from the same stampers - I don't think it's anything to do with the vinyl master. As I said there, it sounds quite low on treble and strangely lacking in sparkle for such a delicate, intricate album. But I own the CD of this and it suffers from the same problem. There's an interesting interview with Mandy Parnell at Sound on Sound - - where she discusses how she remastered the album a couple of times until Bjork was happy, which did involve fleshing out the mid-spectrum and perhaps limiting the top and bottom ends slightly. I can only guess what we're hearing is exactly what Bjork wanted the record to sound like ('dirt, muscles, oxygen and stuff' as she writes in the manual edition).
Both my discs are awful. Lots of surface noise. Clicks and pops. I noticed small particles of black vinyl on the surface of the coloured vinyl. These were actually stuck to the grooves and wiped off leaving marks on the record. Really bad quality pressing.
does your blue disc suffer from alot of surface noise?
